And pretty much exactly why I like Jeffro's work, too!

Oh, I don't mind at all...it's really amusing as hell, since he didn't like the book's title originally!

End of an Era. And only my age too!
Steve Jobs, co-founder of US computer giant Apple, dies, aged 56, after a career that transformed digital technology with a series of innovations.

It's bracing...both to realize that he was only two years older than we are...and that he's gone.

+Kevyn Winkless +Jeffro Johnson - Eric Flint calls for the Hugos to be abolished because they are no longer relevant. 

"But I personally think the best solution, if there is one at all, is to scrap the whole existing set-up. Of all the awards handed out for literary merit, the only ones that seems to maintain any sort of ongoing more-or-less objective relationship to the real world are those given out for often broadly-defined achievement. They’re not awards given out for “best XYZ of year ABC.” Instead, they are achievement awards handed out for a body of work, that may be anchored to something specific but takes other considerations into account, and perhaps most importantly is not tied to an annual cycle."

It's an excellent essay (I don't agree with that conclusion, but even so). 

I rather liked Mercedes Lackey's comment: "I’m content to be a good hack."

Blimey. SGPlus even adds the old-style Facebook feed to Google Plus so you never need to go to the over-complex Facebook page again.

But it only seems to pick up posts from some friends. Appears not like Steve Green or John Jarrold :(
